Arrival Story: When I was about 10 years old some friends of our family had a dog that had puppies. I had wanted one and begged my parents for one. After finding out that they could get a puppy for free from their friends, they decided to let me pick one out. When we got there I fell in love with Sassy instantly! I didn't eve need to look at the others, I had found the perfect dog for me, and she is!
Bio: My beloved Sassy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 9th, 2011. She was 16 (almost 17!) years old. I had her from the time she was about 6 weeks old, she was my very first dog. I grew up with her by my side, and I will miss her always. She was an amazing dog, from playing hide and seek to snuggling. She touched many lives over all of her years, and will be remembered by many. We love you Sassy!
Sassy has been getting old for quite some time now. She can no longer go on walks the way she used to. She's been steadily decining over the last year. She's lost a lot of weight, so the vet put her on steroids to make her eat more in hopes that the extra calories will help. She has trouble walking at all, and walks with a bit of a limp on the front, and the backend she has very little control over nowadays due to weight and muscle loss. Her incontenance has gotten worse. It is only a matter of time now. My heart breaks to think this, but we are down to just a matter of weeks. We take things one day at a time and help her be comfortable the best we can. She still seems happy as long as she has me and her treats. The severe weight loss is very concerning, but the vet can find no signs of cancer that he can see, so we aren't sure what's causing it other than just old age. I'll keep everyone posted as to how she's doing. For now, all we can do is wait and do the best we can to make sure she's happy and comfortable. When she is no longer either of those, then it's time to let her go.....
The dog show is almost here!! Only3 days away!! I'm not entering, but I'll be with Sissy helping her at the table to sell raffle tickets for the goodies baskets! We have all kinds of stuff for them! It should be so much fun! Melissa is bringing Ginger to it too, I haven't seen her in a long time! I can't wait!
